Sal - That's who provided mine, and they delivered to Galway so presume they deliver to Kerry too.

If you PM me when you're thinking of ordering I can give you some pointers on the quality and usefulness of the different bits and bobs you can get.

Delivery to Galway was £73 (sterling) back in March of last year.

It may be worth checking out the Irish crowd Paul5000 mentioned. May work out cheaper.

I have a steel door covered in its own polyetheen on the front very sturdy and a pvc flap at the back joined to timber posts and it stood up to 85mph plus winds no problem.

Hi Paul, what size is the tunnell in the picture and are you happy with the size.
Also what was the approximate cost.

The space inside tunnel is good, it has straight sides which is a big benefit. As for crop selection this year, it will be many different types of chili and tomato plants, climbing borlotti beans, loads of basil and coriander, sweetcorn, and lots of flowers in pots. For now...........

Paul have you done raised beds. Do you think a tunnel that size could be laid out with raised beds before erecting the tunnel.Could you give us a kind of calendar for growing chili.
